as a teenager in the 90ies, Katsuhiro Otomo's Akira was a huge thing for me. I've never seen such a complex story in a comic before and never such level of detail and of course brutality in an animated movie. so, of course i loved it. i had the original of this pixelremix as a poster on my teenage room's wall and just recently found it in one of my boxes from the cellar of my parent's house. so i thought i might give it a try to capture as many details of it as i can into pixelstyle. i never did such a challenging and exhausting pixelartwork before, but i think it turned out quite nice.
i hope you enjoy it.

oh by the way, comparing is fun, i really tried to get all the details in there, here's the original http://www.listal.com/viewimage/172474h
The books are a thousand times better than the movie.
yeah, as a teenager i wasn't able to afford them, because in germany they colored them and split them up into 34 issues for about 20 dollars each. last year i bought an original (but translated) non colored version that has the whole story in 6 books and pretty much inhaled them...
Wow great work! I just have the movie here but not the books.
A friend of mine bought the colored ones back in the day, so I borrowed him. Hehe!
Totally awesome, a nice tribute to one of the best anime movies produced...
This is insane!
So dope! Diggin' it dude!
Wow, dude, this is awesome!
wow, 70 likes and that many comments. thanks guys. that's a nice payback for the time i spent on it. not that it wasn't fun as well.
amazing work as always man!
Absolute großartig fuchs! Soviele Details, musste gleich in PS ranzoomen. Kommen immer erinnerungen wach an total verrauchte arcade buden in italien an denen wir metal slug gezockt haben.
@Reuben Rosh hey, great to see that you got an invite finally.
@Michael Schmidt danke dir, viel spass beim zoomen. wenns dich an metal slug erinnert hab ich ja alles richtig gemacht. gibt kaum geilere sprites, auch wenn ich im spiel an sich tierisch sucke. einfach zu schwer.
A new unexpected pixelart piece from you. High quality one! Legen- just wait for it - dary!
it's now available as a limited high quality print in the geek-art-store: http://geekartstore.bigcartel.com/product/juicefoozle-a-tribute-to-kaneda
